I'll be ordering the mobility kit from eBay (there's some dealer that already said they'll ship to Canada) when summer comes. My winters are RFT, but my summers aren't.

I have the Slime kit from CT, if for nothing other than peace of mind if there is any issue with BMW or CAA getting to me with my non-RFT winters.

I can imagine. I wasn't too happy when mom's minivan was almost a welcome treat after months of just my car and getting beaten to death. I'm surprised the car has as few rattles as it does after this abuse. I can only imagine how displeased non enthusiasts are.

I'd heard though that BMW designed their suspensions with the rigidity of the RFT tires in mind, so things like handling, responsiveness would be affected by going non RFT. How true is that, and how much of an impact would it really have I wonder?

Yeah I've heard that too, but my car handles way better with the 19's. I've tracked the car on both sets.
